Can Correction of Low Vitamin D Status in Infancy Program for a Leaner Body Composition?

Neonates from hospitals in the greater Montreal area will be studied. Neonates will be screened for low vitamin D status within 48 h of birth for 25(OH)D to enable rapid entry into study groups. Those with serum 25(OH)D <50 nmol/L will be randomized to 400 or 1000 IU/d until 1 ...

Clinical Evaluation Of An X-Ray Bone Densitometer:Use Of DXA Technology For Precise Assessment Of Human Body Composition

The secondary objectives of this study are the assessment of the consistency of body composition measurements at local level (arms, trunk, legs) between the Stratos and Hologic 4500 A, Monitoring the evolution of body composition in patients receiving at least two evaluations of DXA Hologic QDR 4500A on: patients treated ...

Protein Balance and Body Composition in Preterm Infants

Nutritional management of preterm infants aims to approximate tissue growth and body composition of a foetus of same postconceptional age. The adequacy of the quality of protein supply could influence the rate and the relative composition of weight gain. Aim of the study is to investigate protein balance according to ...

Body Composition Analysis for Patient With Lung Cancer Using Computed Tomography Image Analysis

Rationale: With 1.6 million new cases diagnosed each year and 1.3 million deaths, lung cancer is the leading cancer-related death worldwide and it represents a pressing health issue. Patients with lung cancer are more likely to experience cachexia, a severe debilitating disorder causing fatigue, weight loss, muscle wasting and associated ...

Body Composition Energy Intake and Expenditure in People With Phenylketonuria

Anthropometric measurements: Height will be measured using a wall-mounted stadiometer to the nearest 0.01 meter. Body mass will be measured in kilograms using balance scale. Body mass index (BMI) will be calculated using the following formula: BMI = kg/m [weight in kilograms/ height in meters]. 2. Handgrip strength (kilograms): Grip ...

Oral Nutritional Supplement Intervention Among Hemodialysis Patients With Sarcopenic Obesity

In chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, disease- and age- related changes in body composition, as well as the increased prevalence of obesity, determine a combination of excess weight and reduced muscle mass or strength, recently defined as sarcopenic obesity. The prevalence of sarcopenic obesity increase with lower eGFR, and previous ...

Effects of Soy Protein on Body Composition and General Health in Healthy Children

The aim of this clinical trial is to assess the effects of daily consumption of soy protein foods on body composition, general health status and dietary intake outcomes in generally healthy children.

Phase N/A

Effect of Rimonabant on Weight Gain and Body Composition in Adults With Prader Willi Syndrome

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of rimonabant, a cannabinoid receptor-1 blocking drug, on the appetite, body weight, body fat and growth hormone level of subjects with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). This will be a double blind placebo controlled clinical trial involving a total of 18 young ...

Gut Derived Hormones Body Composition and Metabolism in Prader-Willi Syndrome

Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) is the most frequent known genetic disorder of obesity. Hyperphagia is the main barrier to independent living in adults with PWS, and hitherto behavioural restraints and environmental modification are the only effective management measure. The emerging costs for professional care are immense. Thus, there is an urgent ...

Phase N/A

Influence of Nutritional and Inflammational Status on Survival of Hemodialysis Patients

prospective longitudinal measurements of nutritional status parameters (body composition by BIA, anthropometry and biochemical indexes), inflammatory response (CRP, inflammatory cytokines (IL-1, IL-6, IL-10),IGF-1, leptin and NOx blood levels) and morbidity and mortality data collection over 2 year period in patients receiving chronic hemodialysis.
